I am afraid to take a peek

My heart’s been playing hide and seek

I do not know what I can do

Or when the time to mourn is through !

Tis all I pray, help me think straight

Perhaps, remember if I ate,

But more than that it’s quite extreme

Life has become a vacant dream.

However much the time may take

I beg You  God, give me a break

Teach me to standup on my own

Don’t let my heart turn into stone !

I hear the echo of the night

Secede to early morning’s light

Each day begins again anew

The world and I still miss you too.

As time moves on the vision fades

With faces lost in vast parades

While we who here remain behind

Have memories that will remind !

I had a dream the other night

And wakened with an awful fright

I felt the ground just slip away

While all my world lay in decay.

It seemed to me I was alone

Some place that was a danger zone

I rose quite slowly from my bed

To take a look around instead.

I said ” Thank you ” I am okay

” Please help me Lord to stay that way ”

I’ll be more cautious late at night

Who dreams to wake with such a fright ?

The night arrives so swiftly now

The moon too soon will make its bow

Hurrah,  say we, but what is there

Beyond yon tree, a blinking stare ?

Who is it there, who hides from me

Reveal yourself, so I may see

Who thinks to play a game or two

Let’s wait to see if I catch you !

Oh my,  oh my,  you brazen guy

You have escaped into the sky

And left me wishing that I might

Join you one day in magic flight !

I hear the bells on Christmas Day

Their old famiiar carols play

And pray the Lord will understand

That soon His birthday is at hand.

It matters not what day that is

For all our days are truly His

The steeple bells ring sweet and clear

To celebrate the Christchild’s here !

 

 

MY RAGGEDY FRIENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/11/08


My old companions, there you are

We’ve been together near and far

And seen a lot, the three of us

Like some elusive omnibus !

 

We’ve traveled far and traveled wide

You’ve never been long from my side

Adventures, well, we’ve had a few

Just you and me and Andy too !

 

Perhaps I’m not too old to see

Your friendship has been good for me

When in a pinch, you both are there

I think you are my bestest pair.

 

Your cotton hands seem fingerless

Your hair’s red yarn is quite a mess

Your clothing has not changed one bit

But everything is sewn to fit.

 

I love you Ann and Andy too

How would I get by without you

I know your stuffing’s getting worn

But none the less, we’ll carry on!

 

TODAY’S WILDERNESS ( 2018 ) 2018/11/07

Sometimes I can’t help remembering

My great grandma’s house in early spring

Oh such joy those old visions bear

Of beaches, sand and the salty air.

The wonderment of childhood may be

The remembrance of past memory

And lifestyles that have all gone astray

With the pleasantries of yesterday.

I wish that I could capture the time

Instead of watch as our lives decline

So sad, dear Lord, what was meant to be

Got lost in this new posterity !
